Move along to the energetic rhythm of local and international sounds heard and sold through this market as well as purchasing scarves, hats and shoes.

This is the Music Bridge Market, named accordingly because of the prominence of music products sold (and loud music playing) in the area. Originally trading was not allowed on this bridge, and there were a high number of criminal incidents in this area. Upon the relocation of the Herb Market, a steel interlinking bridge was built. Traders requested for permission to trade along one side of the music bridge arguing that their permanent presence would discourage crime.

Facilities were then built to accommodate the traders and the bridge balustrades were designed in such a way that users of the bridge were easily visible from surrounding areas. This increased visibility has successfully increased the safety of this market space.
